Benson

The sitcom I grew up with comes to TVLand this weekend with a 48-hour marathon. Now in my thirties with an ear for dialogue, I notice how irascible Benson was, muttering sarcasm at almost every opportunity. Still, the character possessed a warmth that lent weight to the episodes. My favorites are still those where Benson was the political outsider coming up with common sense solutions.
